Strawberry Jam 3: Cosplay Café

“Cosplay Café” by Whales and Games (Jorge M. Carvalho, José Sánchez, Robin Couwenberg & Henry Smith).

“Fire up for an experience that only a cosplay café can provide! Here’s hoping your time at the café is just like we like our coffee: Hot, steamy, and with skimpy clothing!”

Medial products that deal with the subject of the fetish itself often tend to overstate it. Kinks are then no longer just one of many attributes of a personality, but are presented as its center. Fortunately, “Cosplay Café” does not fall into this trap.

You take on the role of a young woman named Caffie, who is desperately looking for a job to pay off her debts. Although she would much rather work with machines than with people, she takes on the job as a part-time manager for a very special café: The eponymous Cosplay Café. Maids and pirate cosplayers gather here for a hot beverage, while bunny girls and wrestlers are sitting at the counter.

To charm her clientele, Caffie not only has to match the drinks and snacks to their tastes, but also she has to find the perfect decoration. But she can not immediately access the best items; she has to buy them first. The money to do that she earns by selling coffee and snacks. The ideal economic cycle, am I right?

In addition, she can also attract new customers by deepening her relationship with six individual customers. A good conversation can work wonders, but the same applies to the fulfillment of certain decoration or menu requests. If Caffie satisfies the cravings of these special customers, she will get a better reputation in their core group (either vanilla, exotic or fantasy), other buffs or even a unique ‘autograph’ in the form of an artwork.

All in all, the game offers a very polished gameplay and can also score with wonderful characters, all of which have a small background story and own peculiarities. Although the content is explicitly addressed to adults, yet the sexual connotation is primarily to be found on the textual level. Furthermore, there are still some pictures of suggestive nature, but they never show any genitals or sex practices. That way “Cosplay Café” proves to be a game that has a positive attitude about sexuality and the completely free development of identity, without visualizing it in any silly or totally simplistic way. Absolutely fantastic! >>PLAY
